Mysterious Priest Performs Miracle at Crash Site?

A priest friend of mine once said in a homily, “For all you young men in the congregation—if there’s not a part of you that wants to be a priest, at least a little bit, then you probably don’t understand what it means to be a priest.” Among the many reasons I think that’s true—and [...]

That Didn’t Take Long: Praising Multi-Spouse Marriage

That didn’t take long. Salon magazine this morning is extolling the virtues of multi-spouse marriages. Same-sex “marriage” proponents have always scoffed at the idea that redefining marriage would open the door for multi-spouse marriages. “My Two Husbands” by Angi Becker Stevens, not only argues for “poly-amorous” unions but continues to scoff at the foolish “right [...]

Swim Against the Current!

CatholicNewsService has a great new video wrap-up from World Youth Day 2013. As Bishop James Conley (Lincoln, NE) says, “It seems as if God gives us the right pope at the right time.” Amen.

Media Ignores What is Likely Driving Minnesota’s Abortion Decline

Last week, the Associated Press reported that the number of abortions performed in Minnesota declined by about 3 percent in 2012. The reaction was pretty predictable. A spokesman for Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life said that young people are more pro-life because they have a better understanding of fetal development and fetal pain. A representative [...]

POLL: Your Favorite Catholic Movies

Benedictine College’s Catholic Hall of Fame wants to know your favorite “Proudly Catholic” movies. Think Les Miserables, For Greater Glory and The Rite: The Gregorian Institute promotes Catholic identity in public life, and so we are looking for movies that do that. In my classes, I like to show movies that thoughtfully critique Catholic identity. [...]

Blackout of Alec Baldwin’s homophobic rant exposes Hollywood double standard

The Catholic Church is constantly accused of being anti-gay, primarily because it condemns homosexual acts and gay “marriage.” This, of course, doesn’t make the Church anti-gay. The Catholic Church loves all people, in the truest sense of the word, and wants them to reign with God forever and ever. Those who encourage licentious behavior and [...]
